[[caption-width-right:156:How could you ''not'' fall in love with that [[WhenHeSmiles smile]]?]]

Welcome to the world of Charlie [=McDonnell=], a British twenty-something, Website/YouTube sensation, band member of Music/ChameleonCircuit, and the epitome of {{Adorkable}}. He can be found [[http://www.youtube.com/user/charlieissocoollike here.]]

He started making vlogs when he was supposed to be revising for his GCSE's in July of 2007 and his channel has grown to have over one and a half million subscribers since then, making him the second most-subscribed-to [=YouTuber=] in the United Kingdom after {{Yogscast}} Bluexephos.
